News - SparkFun's Awesome Solar …
about 6 years ago
Thank you for the nice description of Sparkfun's solar array.
Could you do a follow-up post detailing your energy usage? Broken down by time of day, and end use?
Once you understand Sparkfun's electricity usage patterns you may be able to reduce demand charges by scheduling peak loads to coincide with peak solar production. Or by adding storage to time-shift your PV watts to times of highest net demand.
There are companies that will do this analysis for you, and make their profit from a percentage of the savings...
No public wish lists :(
